A few of the highlights:
Pirate ship mast used as electric pole, stack of upturned 2x2 dishes as....whatever those things are called, and the wizard lighting piece to shorted out connection!

Notice the 1x1 round plates at the edge of the roof and the 1x2 curved bricks incorporated in the ridge pole. Oh, and don't miss the clever SNOT door!
EDIT: those are NOT 1x2 slopes, they are 1x2 tiles mounted on a 45 degree angle! How did he do that? Also notice the roof of the tower - it is constructed much the same way.

This axe makes good use of the Count Dooku lightsaber handle and the new Castle 2007 scythe.
These swords are among my favorite for their overall elegance of design.
Be sure to check out the entire gallery!

In this picture, several techniques can be noticed. First of all, his method of texturing the ground, showing places where the grass has been torn down to stone or dirt. Also notice the construction of the lamps on either side of the doorway and the use of corrugated 1x2 bricks on the gables of the roof. And don't miss the shield - it's not that new of a concept anymore but is still worth a mention.
Also not to be missed: the drawer construction technique used in the cabinet of this room. Side thought: I wonder why he didn't use tiles for the bed?

This creation was brought to my attention by it's builder himself, Miles Flinn. I especially like the way he did the wings (with flags) and the use of the telephone pieces in the construction of the legs. There are a few other interesting concepts in his gallery.
By the way, Miles sent me the suggestion to blog his creation through the handy-dandy link I've provided over on the left hand side. I'm always looking for innovative MOCs, so if you find or build one, feel free to use this feature to give me a buzz!

Here we have another motorcycle, but this one is from Fat Tony. This one warrants some serious gazing. Ever time I look at it again I see something I missed before! Here are a few of many unique techniques: the KKII helm used as the front fender, the saw blade and closed wrench used in the back wheel support, and the pickax used for a kick-stand.
Here you can get a better idea of the Technic construction. Check out the gallery for more techniques!
